Luke Arnett, CPA

Luke joined Barfield, Murphy, Shank & Smith in 2013 and currently serves as a supervisor at the firm. He works primarily with credit union clients but is also involved with the construction and manufacturing practice groups. In the past, he has assisted in counting a bulk inventory for a client in a very efficient manner that led to peace of mind for the client when trying to value their company’s inventory and scrap.

Luke was inspired to go into the accounting profession after a college professor encouraged him to give accounting a try. He found that he really enjoyed the classes and saw the need for accountants in the workforce.

Luke grew up in Gadsden, Alabama and graduated from Southside High School before attending the University of Alabama. He and his wife, Stephanie, and their son currently reside in Pelham. They attend Hunter Street Baptist Church and enjoy attending any type of sporting event.
